Break Dividing Walls

“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” -Matthew 12:25

We are living in a nation that is becoming bitterly divided between racial, religious and political ideologies. Unfortunately, the same division seems to be spreading in the church. Some of the division is rooted in ancient wounds and some is the well worn strategy of our adversary satan who is the accuser of the brethren. But sadly, most walls of division exist because of living in unforgiveness and the unwillingness to let go of offenses. Jesus said that “a house divided cannot stand.”

Someone once said, “Bitterness is the poison we drink hoping others will die.” Bitterness hardens the heart and ultimately separates us from one another and from God. Somewhere we have to come to common footing at the cross and break dividing walls. We are one family, saved by grace through faith in Jesus and are to forgive one another, just as God in Christ also forgave us. Eph 4:32

Proclamations and Prayer 

“Father, in the name of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit forgive us for holding on to offenses. Forgive us for justifying our division and exalting ourselves above others. Father I pray today that every dividing wall would be broken in the church. Heal the ancient wounds, bind the work of the enemy and loose a spirit of unity. For there you command Your blessing forever more. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
